CEO to lead the public service

CEO recruitment

The States Employment Board is seeking a Chief Executive Officer to lead the Public Service.   

We are keen to speak to candidates from a range of industries with suitable experience that can demonstrate the skills required for this unique position.  


About the role  

This role requires someone with the leadership skills needed to continue to stabilise the organisation, to provide a collaborative and innovative approach and to focus on key deliverables to achieve the Government’s agenda. The position is unlike any in the Public Service, given Jersey’s role as a Crown Dependency with its own legal system, government and parliament.  

The role necessitates resilient, long-term commitment and strong, visible leadership on the CEO’s part. It requires someone with a style that, while ordered and decisive, is nonetheless inclusive and empowering and has a capacity to keep several priorities going at any one time and to delegate effectively. The CEO will be asked to deliver on the clear goals identified in the Government’s Plan and make a difference to Islanders’ lives.  
The Public Service is led by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Officers. The leadership team set the bar for performance management and the CEO will need to have a focus on modelling good line management and performance management.
